Doctor Who meme: Six companions: River Song (6/6)
this is and forever will be the best thing ever
the way his face changes so suddenly is just genius
It’s performances like this which make me disappointed when I hear people say they don’t like Eccelston or skip over that whole season just to get to Tennant. Tennant was fantastic and a brilliant Doctor, but there wouldn’t be a Tennant Doctor without Eccleston’s Doctor. The way Tennant’s Doctor was portrayed was the effect that Rose had on Nine. In the beginning, Nine was harsh and unforgiving having come back from the Time War, his time with Rose softened that harsh attitude and it’s really shown in this episode.
“Just this once, everybody lives!” Has to be my absolute favourite line in all the history of Doctor who because in that episode everyone did.
I cry in almost all of Nine’s episodes. But not happy or sad tears. Just fucking intense emotion tears. He was fantastic.
I have a lot of favourite Doctors but Nine will and always be my Doctor. Not just my first Doctor but MY Doctor. And this is without doubt one of my favourite episodes.
in which the Doctor is very heterosexual
This is one of the reasons why I love Doctor Who, they really just do not give a shit about sexuality. In series 1 episode 2 a fucking tree woman fancied the Doctor. They’ve had lesbians, lesbian lizard women, gays, interspecies relationships, Jack, a transgender horse and so much more. If there were such a thing as a LGBT safe show it’s Doctor Who.
And I think the best part of it is that they don’t go overboard trying to emphasize it. A lot of shows that have lesbian, gay, bi, trans, or any other orientated couple/character kind of throw it in your face like lOoK WOw GaY iS OkaY, LOoK hoW LGBT-FRieNdLY wE ArE, but with Doctor Who they just have some random people doing what they have to do and being bad ass and then somewhere along the way you find out their sexual preferences but they don’t make a big deal out of it.
